Today's offering showcases this gorgeous ref. 3805 "TV shaped" Rolex from the Cellini Collection. It was made right at the end of the production run for the 3805...it is the latest one we have seen and presents virtually like a new Cellini.
Rolex designed the Cellini to be the preeminent symbol of elegance and performance. A premier dress watch, this Cellini has an 18K white gold case, Royal blue dial with 18K white gold markers, and high-grade handwound caliber 1601 movement.
As a midsized mens watch it is well-suited for someone who doesn't have a large wrist.
It is 100% Rolex down to the original hands and crown - all parts are original Rolex. It presents in gorgeous condition - a 9.8 or 9.9 out of 10. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. Our photos couldn't begin to capture its condition level and attractiveness.
Its case presents as mint with all of its original markings still fully intact. Note that the black spot on the left side in the photos is just a reflection.
Its original dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye. It presents just slightly darker in our photos than in person - it is a true beautiful royal blue
A Master Watchmaker has just overhauled the movement, which is near pristine. We have tested it on a machine that spins it in all directions simulating it being worn on the wrist, and it continues to keep extremely accurate time.
For the finishing touch it has been equipped with a brand new leather strap and aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Kindly note that band has been changed from the one in photographs. The current band can be seen in the one photo captioned "Current band on the watch"
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
A four and a half decade old Cellini that presents like new!
